Walmart’s Highway 50 Nevada in Las Vegas has reopened after the weather made it necessary to close for the year.
The highway reopened Wednesday afternoon, with no detours.
It was the first time the highway has reopened since October 2016, when a large fire in the highway killed seven people.
The Las Vegas Fire Department said at the time that the blaze burned through about 2,600 acres of vegetation and forced a highway closure that lasted more than two months.
Highway 50 reopened on Nov. 15 after a fire in an abandoned building caused a closure that ended on Jan. 4, 2019.
Highway 52 reopened last year, after a road closure in February 2018 killed 11 people and damaged more than $2 billion in property.
A sign at the entrance to Auburn, Oregon has been temporarily shut down after an investigation by the Oregon Highway Patrol.
The Oregon Highway Police say the sign was removed by a resident on Friday afternoon.
The sign was installed in November 2015, and was used by Oregon residents for the last two years to allow drivers to exit the state at the Auburn exit.
According to the Highway Patrol, a resident who noticed the sign had complained to the officer, who sent out a notice to the local newspaper.
The letter said, “It is unlawful to remove the Auburn Exit Sign.
You may not remove it.”
The Oregon Department of Transportation says that since its installation in 2015, the Auburn highway exit has been used by drivers to travel between Auburn and OHSU.
The highway exit was installed with the assistance of the Auburn and Eugene police departments, and the Oregon Department also had a liaison with Auburn police to monitor traffic at the exit.
The Highway Patrol has not provided any information about the cause of the closure, but Oregon Highway spokesman Tim Gorman says the sign is in the process of being repaired.
